Celebrating life before the training and the pilgrimage. Always trying to put as much Carpe in my Diem as possible. Anything worth doing is worth doing to excess. I will walk about 5000 miles before I start the 500 miles of the Camino Frances. Likely carrying more than I need and walking faster than necessary. I expect that the Camino will be a bit of a metaphor for life. Entered into with anticipation and some knowledge but with sufficient confidence that I can handle it. This is how I entered into most jobs, and most of the roles I have played in my life. My hope is that by the time I enter the cathedral in Santiago de Compastella I will be as pleased and proud as I have been for all those things above.
